London – IBF Heavyweight World Champion, Anthony Joshua, has taken delivery of a bespoke Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic. His new ride follows his victory over Wladimir Klitschko, taking the IBF and WBA heavyweight titles at Wembley Stadium on April 29.


Joshua commissioned the bespoke Range Rover earlier in 2017 when he visited the SVO Technical Centre in Warwickshire. The 4x4 has  unique interior and exterior features, including a bespoke premium paint finish which SVO has dedicated to its client and named it ‘World Champion Graphite’.

Anthony Joshua said: "I am preparing meticulously for Wembley on April 29th, no stone has been left unturned and I will enter the ring ready for a battle. I spend a lot of time on the road travelling to Sheffield during my training camps so I am incredibly grateful to Land Rover and the SVO team for their assistance.

“The Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic is the pinnacle of luxury and performance and it has been a pleasure to partner with the SVO team to create a version unique to my tastes."

'Bespoke by SVO'

The ‘Bespoke by SVO’ Range Rover for Anthony Joshua is hand-finished at the SVO Technical Centre near Coventry. Joshua’s bespoke Range Rover is also the first in the world to feature the new SVO Design Pack, which introduces a range of highly desirable and distinctive exterior enhancements to complement Range Rover’s peerless combination of outstanding British design and advanced engineering.

It, says the automaker, "provides even greater scope for customers to personalise their vehicle" and includes a number of distinct exterior changes, including unique front and rear bumpers – the latter incorporating integrated quad tailpipes – new side vents, side sills and a bespoke grille. The SVO Design Pack will be officially launched worldwide this month.



Bespoke finishes co-created by Anthony Joshua and SVO include:

 • Bespoke exterior colour named World Champion Graphite 
 • Diamond-quilted leather interior, finished in ebony and red
 • Anthony Joshua’s signature embroidered on the driver’s headrest
 • Sorts equipment storage unit in the boot for training equipment
 • A chrome B-pillar badge featuring Joshua's signature
 • Door handles with unique boxing glove pattern surrounds
 • Engraved signature aluminium letter box finishers on doors
 • Bespoke Anthony Joshua-inscribed treadplates
